@Mets
We’ve acquired LHP Daniel Zamora and cash considerations from Pittsburgh in exchange for LHP Josh Smoker. #Mets

Good numbers, but older soft tosser. 40th round pick. Looks like he'll join PJ Conlon as the lefties in Bing's bullpen.

Better than cash, but still not sure why this was the move.

Numbers look pretty decent. Got a lot of GBs. 24Ks to 4 BBs in a combined 15.2 IP facing LHed hitters in A+.

Stony Brook kid.

Because he doesn't need to be 40ed.

No, meant Smoker.

Because for Reynolds we should be able to pull in Omar Quintanilla.

I can't answer that part. It's not that I thought particularly highly of Smoker; it's because I don't see the point of Reynolds or Monty being on the roster, speaking nothing of Robles...

This whole thing is a head scratcher. Zamora may see the majors at some point but I still feel that Smoker is a work in progress who actually become serviceable in the 2nd half last year.

BTW: I really think Reynolds will be put out to the wolves when /if we sign another infielder.

BTW: I would have kept Smoker over Montero.......I really thought Montero was finally getting over the hump until, what is liklier than not, his "true" self came roaring back again in late '17. I always likened him to Julio Teheran. However, Montero will never be Teheran, even the Teheran who pitched pretty meh last season.

BTW: I would give Robles another chance. He actually could become decent if he is able to make some adjustments. I will say, he was pretty awful last year but then so was a large part of the starters who we are hoping will recover in 2018.

Smoker is going to have a 2.5 ERA over 50 innings in Pittsburgh.

You bring in a manager lauded for working with pitchers and then dump Smoker in favor of Reynolds...
